Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy

Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy is a relatively new treatment for those with treatment-resistant depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD and suicidal drive. While it is not yet an FDA-approved treatment, numerous studies have found it to be effective in decreasing depressive symptoms and suicidal ideation. Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy combines the therapeutic effects of ketamine with the support and safety available through the therapeutic relationship.

Those who have been prescribed ketamine by an authorized healthcare provider may choose to schedule special therapy sessions during which the prescribed medication is taken. Doing so can, in many cases, facilitate trauma-resolution work - particularly for those experiencing difficult-to-treat depression symptoms.

Combining ketamine with psychotherapy can provide a pathway to awareness free from ingrained patterns, inhibitions and old narratives. Ketamine’s psychedelic properties can help bring emotions to the surface, giving us a closer look into the unconscious mind.

I have spent the last two years offering ketamine-assisted psychotherapy to clients suffering from PTSD, depression, anxiety, and various other issues. I combine low-dose ketamine with a somatic trauma modality that allows for past traumas to resolve through the body.
